Weight and Food

Wednesday, June 05, 2013      3 comments

Yesterday I got on the scale and saw a dreaded number- too much for me. I've got to get back with it. Mainly I need to control my eating and stop all the snacking. I just find it hard to be so disciplined with my eating since I've always been... Read more

running vs biking

Friday, May 10, 2013      3 comments

Tommorrow is the Iron Mom in Paducah. I ran the 13 miles the 1st year and last year I did half of it in a relay with my daughter. This will be the third year and I'm not doing it- boo hoo. It just doesn't fit into my schedule and I'm not in s... Read more

Happy Thanksgiving

I have so much to be thankful for. I have a good job that I love and a husband who can fix anything- (he just took apart the microwave door when the latch broke and has identified the defective part) My two daughters are both beautiful and in... Read more

How to stay out of the halloween candy? Well I'm not buying any but I still crave it. Show me some free candy and I will succomb to my cravings. I wish it was a simple matter of willpower. It's just so much more complicated than that. It ju... Read more

Off the Wagon

Wednesday, September 19, 2012      2 comments

My weight is back to where it was before I lost 15lbs. This dissapoints me but I'm trying to stay loyal to spark people and trying to watch what I eat. I feel like I'm just a step or two away from totally letting myself go. I've been exercisi... Read more

Green green everywhere

Spring has come to western KY suddenly it seems. It's been in the 70's and 80's. Everything is blooming and my allergies know it. All the weeds are growing. I hate this clogged up feeling in my head. Spring tends to make me tired. Maybe it's... Read more

Welcome back

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      2 comments

Okay I haven't logged into spark people for a good six months and I'm glad to be back here. I've missed it. I like the changes to the food tracker. I have tried to stay active and eat healthy in the mean time. I did a half marathon in June i... Read more

End of an Era

Wednesday, May 25, 2011      0 comments

Today my baby is 21. Where did all those years go? I loved being at home with the kids. I was lucky to be able to be at home and to take care of them during those early years. We had good friends and our kids got to play and grow up together... Read more

Biggest Loser

Wednesday, May 11, 2011      2 comments

I really love the show Biggest Loser but I have a problem with it. They make it look as though you can exercise the weight off. They have little emphasis on meals but I guess that's understandable in TV land. Meals are sure not so action pack... Read more

Because of all the rain the date of the Iron Mom half marathon in Paducah has been changed to June. So that made me start thinking that I might be able to participate. On the date of the race I don't have to work until 1pm. So after some foot... Read more

We have had about 10 inches of rain in the last 5 days. All the rivers are rising. I complain about our wet yard but on tv I see people with lakes surrounding their houses and many people are sandbagging. So we are lucky ones. No flooded hous... Read more

new job

Friday, April 15, 2011      6 comments

I have started a new job after taking a vacation and so spark people and logging food hasn't been happening. The new job is a stressful one without a regular schedule so I wonder how it will affect my eating. I have been staying on the exercis... Read more

Logging Food

Monday, March 21, 2011      3 comments

Exercising is not as hard for me as controlling my eating. I hate to log my food. I mainly try to eat healthy and I don't mind doing that. I always feel better if what I eat is good for me (and tastes good too). But that discipline of writin... Read more
